edcsc

Mapdl.edcsc(key='', **kwargs)

Specifies whether to use subcycling in an explicit dynamics analysis.

APDL Command: EDCSC

Parameters
key

Subcycling key:

OFF - Do not use subcycling (default).

ON - Use subcycling.

Notes

Subcycling can be used to speed up an analysis when element sizes within a model vary significantly. Relatively small elements will result in a small time step size. When subcycling is on, the minimum time step size is increased for the smallest elements.

This command is also valid in PREP7.
